Some things never change! Even on Office 2013, if you look at the ribbon on a word document, the icon to "save" a document is a still a floppy disc! An item that also didn't exist 40 years ago. ;-)

The last pay phones I remember cost a quarter, yet when one is ratted out to the police it's still "drop a dime on"

Nuke - meant war, not warm in the microwave

Groovy - has fortunately gone the way of the dodo

Boondocks - had a nasty overtone of "ghetto" not into the wilds of nature

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

But to continue Panama Red's theme of things that didn't exist 40 years ago…
Laptops, e-mail, mobile phones, GPS, MRI, LEDs, LCD television screens, photovoltaic solar panels, biodiesel, bar codes, ATMs…
A couple of those actually are 40 years old. Bar Codes and ATMs have both been around that long.
